In the UK, just 2 per cent of journeys these days are made by bike - but that could change dramatically when congestion charges in the capital begin to bite. For Victorian and Edwardian women, being able to venture out alone on two wheels dressed in bloomers was nothing short of a revolution (page 12). Respectable women (and goddesses) in ancient Greece spent their days with wheels of a differnet nature. Spinning - and weaving - tasks form the basis of many Greek myths, and these stories (retold on page 23) make an ideal accompaniment to this week's pull-out poster, the second in our four-part series on Civilisations.
